(Gadzooks! In the Washington Post no less): Hillary Clinton’s and the DNC’s puzzling half-measures on Harvey Weinstein
Now this is almost laughable. The Clinton Creature and the DNC will take money from ANYONE, this is a given. But of all the people/organisations that have donated to them THIS is what’s going to trip the WP’s trigger? The WP calling out the Clinton Creature’s greed or the DNC’s pathetic financial condition openly is another surprise considering that usually its first reaction is to pretty much lie and obstruct when it comes to Clinton/DNC shenanigans.
We all know the Clinton Creature is no friend to women or (12-year old) girls. But one would think that, just for APPEARANCES sake, she and the DNC would act as snowflake pure just as they demand of the Great Unwashed and give the money back ALL of it. And not to special interest groups that support the Clinton Creature and Dimocritic Party, but back to the predatory skunk that gave it to them in the first place. But then again, when one of the founders of the Turd Way Neo-liberal Koch-Brothers-finance ‘New’ Democratic Party is a liar and predator himself, I guess not even the APPEARANCE of ethical behaviour will help much. Plus now the DNC is finding out what happens when they tell a big chunk of their supporters to ‘go away, we don’r need you’
Hillary Clinton’s and the DNC’s puzzling half-measures on Harvey Weinstein
It's all extraordinarily hard to read (and listen to), and it's got plenty of big-name Democrats donating to charity the money spread around by Weinstein, a the top Democratic donor and fundraiser.
There are a couple big exceptions, though: Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee. And both are handling the situation in rather puzzling ways.
The DNC's response is a real head-scratcher. Two of the three groups it chose to donate to — Emily's List and Emerge America — expressly support Democratic candidates. The third, Higher Heights, is technically nonpartisan, but since it supports African American women running for office, you can bet that the vast majority of that money will help Democrats.
It's understandable why the DNC wouldn't be donating the full $300,000; after all, right now that would constitute more than one-tenth of its net funds (i.e., cash on hand minus debt), which stood at just $2.8 million at the end of August. The DNC has had money problems for years, and it's basically bleeding cash right now.
Clinton's decision not to donate is probably more justifiable, given that the campaign is over. But she also only took $5,000 from Weinstein in her last campaign, she's still got $1 million in the bank, and that amount of money is a pittance to the uber-wealthy Clintons. Why not just do what other Democrats are doing and unload it? Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said Monday on CNN: “I think any of us who received donations should [donate them to charity] and use it to support the cause of combating sexual harassment.”
I have an idea why she dudn’t consider giving the money back. Maybe because she’s married to, and covered for, a guy just like Weinstein (and Trump and Epstein) she doesn’t think this behaviour is really that out-of-line. When you’re a BFF with Henry Kissinger, predatory sexual behaviour must seem pretty tame.
But back to the really funny part. This is the WASHINGTON POST, the media outlet that whored and lied for the Clinton Creature and the DNC in order to put her in the Oval Office. Dead children on beaches, a corrupt family slush fund, 30+ years of lies and pandering to the 1%. and THIS is what the WP gets all social justice warriorie over? A common everyday ploy used by TPTB in every walk of life? Well, good for them. I will (begrudgingly) give the WP for finding an ounce of ethics. Too bad they didn’t know to do that when the Dimocritics were deciding who should run for the Oval Office in 2016. Or, , didn’t decide that to lie and cheat yo help grease her way into the Presidency was pretty damn sleazy in itself.
